Do you ever make something and just can't help smiling when you are done? That is how it was with this project. It ranks as one of my top 5 favorite projects of all time, and it was simple and came together (almost) effortlessly.
I painted random pieces of scrap wood, trim pieces, pallet wood and Bri Waxed the window frame with light brown. I wasn't sure how much I needed, just painted what I thought might work. None of the scrap pieces I had were long enough to go across the whole window so I knew I would have to cut them into sections. The next thing I had to decide was how to attach the wood to the very narrow interior window strips. This problem led to the happy solution of running the wood in opposite directions.
I used the nail gun to attach the pieces, had to shoot straight and did miss you a few, but only a few. I had one skinny scrap piece left, one. I thought that was pretty good seeing I really had no idea how much I needed and just painted random pieces with no real plan in mind.
This sold within the first hour at The Prairie Sisters show--I will be making more.
